Magnussen has a number of credits under his belt. He got his start on Broadway in the 2007 revival of The Ritz. The plot of this play involved a businessman who took refuge in a gay bathhouse from a homicidal mobster. It goes without saying that anytime an actor appears in a Broadway play, particularly one with a heavy gay theme, rumors are bound to follow.

Television credits include the role of Casey Hughes on the soap, As the World Turns (2008) and Law and Order – Criminal Intent. Movie credits include Into the Woods as Rapunzel’s Prince (2014) and Revenge of the Green Dragons in the role of Detective Boyer (2014).

3. Billy Magnussen Girlfriends

There is precious little information available about this actor’s dating life. In interviews available online, Magnussen does not talk about his personal relationships and appears to be a guy who likes to keep details of his personal life private.

Anytime an actor is ambiguous about their romantic life there is a good chance gay gossip and pink whispers will erupt. Other actors who have experienced this phenomenon include Jake Gyllenhaall, Kenny Chesney and Shemar Moore.

4. Billy Magnussen Gay Rumors

We’ve covered some of the reasons gay rumors exist about Billy Magnussen above, including his first gig in a gay themed play and the apparent void in his dating life. There are other reasons, however, that cause some folks to wonder if he is gay.

As mentioned earlier, anytime an actor works in theater, particularly on Broadway, there’s going to be pink whispers.We have seen this with actors like Hugh Jackman and Daniel Radcliffe.

Second, this is a very good looking actor who has showed off his stuff in on stage. Going by the visual evidence, he appears to have a LARGE basket of talent.

Third, Billy Magnussen is just plain pretty. He had golden locks of hair and crystal blue eyes. His body is chiseled and cut. The dude obviously takes care of himself. Silly as it may seem, when you combine all of these ingredients together, there’s going to be a lot of gay men who engage in wishful thinking. We certainly have had our fantasies here at the blog!

None of this of course makes anything true but it does help to provide context regarding why these gay rumors exist. Other actors who have been on the receiving side of rainbow whispers for the reasons mentioned here include Daniel Sunjata and Aaron Tveit.

FYI: Sometimes, actors will purposely keep the specifics regarding their personal life private as a way of creating buzz around their celebrity. An excellent example of this can be found in Benedict Cumberbatch, who recently announced his engagement. Jared Leto is yet another example.

  1. Of course they are what they want us to believe they are! When the rumors get hot and heavy, they soon do the PDA thing with a supposed GF (beard?). In time they will be denying they are gay and maybe a year or two later, they will come out, ala: Wentworth Miller! There are quite a few of these twinks who are rumored wanting to come ‘out’ but their PR teams hold them back. Also, my ‘gaydar’ pings quite a bit when I see his pics!
